Got plans? Forget them. They will go astray. Have a list of to-do's to get done? Well consider them to-dont's. Want to paint your nails? Take a nice long bath? Anything considered a luxury....No. Nope. Don't even get your hopes up thinking about it. If there's something that can go wrong, it will. If there's something that will make you late, force plans to change, throw a monkey wrench in your day, it will happen.
The deck seems to just be stacked against you. It's all about being in survival mode. All about simply trying to survive the day. Every second of every minute of every hour of that day will be spent trying to keep your calm and sanity until bed time. No plans will be kept. No to-do's will get done. And certainly no leisurely time will be had. Your blinders are up, you're running on fumes, you're kicking ass (the day's ass, not you're children's!) and taking names.
Survival mode. Every Mama's got one. Some days are just like that.
